# Quantum Theory for the Public

Thank you for showing an interest in my short course, which consists of approximately **6 hours** of material, spread over 6 lectures. This course is based on a sell-out lecture series at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Dr. James Millen has 10 years experience in communicating quantum science to a public audience.

The philosophy of this course is to offer a thorough introduction to quantum theory without requiring a scientific or mathematical background.

Course syllabus:

**The historical development of quantum theory;**blackbody radiation, photoelectric effect, Compton scattering, Bohr model of the atom.**The development of quantum theory;**matter-waves, the Schroedinger equation, the Born rule, matrix mechanics, superposition & entanglement.**The interpretations of quantum theory;**Bell’s theorem, Copenhagen interpretation, decoherence, Bohmian mechanics, many-worlds interpretation.**The impact of quantum theory on science;**quantum field theory, particle physics, symmetry, solids, the transistor, superconductors, superfluids.**Quantum technology;**quantum information, quantum computing, quantum communication & cryptography, teleportation, sensing.**Quantum physics in the world around us;**Why don’t we notice quantum effects? How do we perform quantum experiments? Macroscopic quantum physics, quantum biology.
